iPhone X Plus said to be iPhone 8 Plus size, iOS 12 to bring horizontal Face ID support, more

A new report today from Macotakara sheds more light on the iPhone models to be introduced later this year. The blog says the 6.5-inch ‘iPhone X Plus’ is roughly the same size as the current iPhone 8 Plus, and offers a few more tidbits of information…

The report cites a “reliable supplier information source” and claims that the rumored 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X model coming this later this is roughly the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, which features a 5.5-inch display. The size comparison can be seen below.

However, the 6.5-inch 2018 iPhone is expected to be slightly thicker due to the “mounting form of the rear camera.” Macotakara says the device will be around 0.2mm thicker, which would put 7.7mm in thickness.

The similarity in size is due in large part to the drastically smaller bezels on the 6.5-inch iPhone. As we’ve seen with the current iPhone X, the edge-to-edge display makes a huge difference in overall footprint.
